Fuggle H

Fuggle H is one of several Fuggle hybrids. Selected in 1961 at Corvallis, Oregon, from the original Fuggle, it carries the same alpha acids content as Fuggle (US) and is known to bear a robust woody and fruity aroma. With the announcement in 1997 that Anheiser Beusch was phasing out Fuggle, production in the US has declined.
